Pick Out Your Outfit in Advance — and 4 Other Rules the World's Most Stylish Women Swear By
The good — and sometimes frustrating thing — about working in fashion is the fact that you're constantly surrounded by really well-dressed women. It can be awe-inspiring and downright infuriating, but that's the truth. As such, I've spent a lot of my time in the industry studying their looks and, well, just asking a lot of questions about their outfits and their sense of style. The conversations over the years have led to one fundamental truth. It doesn't matter the age of the woman, what she does, or even how much money she has to spend on her wardrobe. The most stylish women in the room have one thing in common: they always stay true to their personal style.
Stay True to Your Personal Style
It sounds simple, but your personal style is what distinguishes the best dressed women in the room from everyone else. It's not the trends and not the expensive handbag they're carrying, but how the outfit highlights the woman who's wearing it. These women have a keen sense of what looks good on their body types, what colors highlight their complexion, what shoes are cool but also practical, and what look best suits the occasion. They're thoughtfully in tune with their fashion sense daily, and that strong sense of identity guides them when they're choosing an outfit for everything from a weekend getaway to a high-stakes business dinner.
If it sounds out of reach, it doesn't have to be. There are simple steps you can take regularly to help tune into your own fashion sense and build your own perfect wardrobe.
